Our Steam Sale Picks, Round 3!

We're coming to the end of the Summer Steam Sale so chances are you've picked up the things you'd already got your eye on, but there are always games that sneak under the radar or come from genres you might usually ignore.

Have You Played… Cradle

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Have you played Cradle [official site]?

This is on top of it previously putting me in mind of a happy Amnesia. I guess that's what happens when you make…

New Cradle Footage Gently Rocks

I realise now that attempting to put into words what's happening in Cradle's trailer is impossible. It doesn't allow for easy interpretation. The developers, Flying Cafe for Semianimals, are making a game with the sort of internal logic that defies simple analysis, raising unanswerable questions, in a Myst or Witness vibe, although Cradle does seem more connected to our world than either of those. There…
